There are so many choices when it comes to living in the North Lake Tahoe area. Carnelian Bay (formerly, Cornelian Bay circa 1883) is one of our favorite locations on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The town was named Carnelian Bay for the semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering the shoreline. Sitting at an elevation of 6,325 feet, this quaint town is at an ideal spot for snow in winter and warm days in the summer. Fishing here is desired for the big Mackinaw trout and the beaches which are inviting for dogs, kayakers, SUPers and sunset seekers. Here you will also find Waterman’s Landing, a unique blend of a delicious Cafe Menu, Stand-up paddle board shop and year round water-sport rental fleet. Home of Gar Woods Grill & Pier. A beautiful lakefront setting with a large deck for outdoor seasonal dining. Seafood, steaks, pasta and the famous “Wet Woody.”
